Peterhof Palace & Gardens in Saint Petersburg, Russia was once the formal garden of Peter the Great. Although what’s currently visible today is largely reconstruction, this popular attraction still holds over 80 original marble sculptures and statues.
Surrounded by green foliage, impeccably well-landscaped, and rich with artifacts from Peter the Great’s lifetime, this stunning compound is just 30 km west of St. Petersburg in the Gulf of Finland. It is home to an incredible array of gravity-powered water features that includes three major cascades and over 140 fountains.
This complex also houses Peter’s Summer Palace.
As the most famous and spectacular imperial estate in all of St. Petersburg, this massive location can take a full day to appreciate in its entirety.Places nearby:
